My recent email interchange...

The below is a transcription of a recent email exchange between myself and Peter Rigby. I was attempting to email Peter Rigby - my foster sister's father, in relation to wedding arrangements for his daughter.

My sister suggested I put it up here for the amusement of others. I have blanked out our email addresses for obvious reasons.

As per all email exchanges, start at the bottom and work your way up.

Don't forget the oil-streaked bit of the stripper... that sounds like it would really liven up the hen party...

Afraid I have to confess that you really have got the wrong Peter -although if I were the real Peter I would also be amused that you were embarrassed so him and I must have something in common!

And yes, I will regale this story at future dinner parties, I hope you get over the embarrassment.

Would be interested to learn how you come upon my email address in the first place?

Do I sincerely have the wrong Peter..?

The real Peter would think it amusing to pretend it wasn't himself so I felt excruciatingly embarrassed at having discussed gyrating strippers to an utter stranger... I'm all in a confusion now.

I'm terribly sorry if you are the wrong Peter. But looking on the bright side, I'm sure secretly you are utterly delighted to have erroneously received the below - it's a good dinner party anecdote surely! :-)

Hi Natalie, I think you have the wrong Peter...

That said... I think its only fair that you arrange a gyrating, oil slicked stripper for Ray's hen night... I will let you know if I am available -hen nights are free!

Peter (the wrong one)

Hi Peter,

How are you? I hope my mother behaved herself for you and Carol...

Two things:

One, I heard you are looking to get rid of an old desk. I'm looking for a desk - I'm converting my dining room into a reading room and would like a writing desk. I wonder if you would consider selling it to me - and how much would you like.

Two, there is NO WAY I am arranging a bl**dy stripper for Ray's hen night. If she wants one, tough titty. I'm the chief bridesmaid in charge of organising the hen night and it will be a quiet, calm affair with no baby lotion and gyrating men thank you very much! Just had to clarify that. I have my reputation to protect and all...

Pass on my regards to Carol and speak soon!

Love Natalie xx
